Quests for Jirachi Special Research discovered as Ultra Bonuses announced

Start walking a Feebas now in Pokémon GO for the Jirachi Special Research tasks!

A new Special Research task for Jirachi, A Thousand-Year Slumber, in Pokémon GO has started. Players have already breezed through the tasks, and sans the rewards for the last stage (besides Jirachi itself!), all the rewards and tasks have been discovered. They are as follows:

The clear takeaway here is that you should start walking a Feebas now. It takes 20 km to be able to evolve a Feebas set as your Buddy, but you can start walking early. If you have access to Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu and Eevee, the Meltan box will allow you to catch plenty of Steel-type Pokémon for part 4 of the Special Research.
